trial in the history of the united states. that's my conclusion after studying it as close as i could. and that's the report of my book. i try to explain in my book why i believe that to be true, and i will try to give you a suggestion on what i believe that to be true in my remarks here tonight. john brown's trial was the first trial in the history of the united states to receive massive attention from national media. it was the first trial in which a defendant was executed for treason against a state, as opposed to treason against the united states. it was the first trial in which an accused defendant appealed to a higher law to justify violent crimes. it was a trial that involved more than just a determination of an individuals guilt or innocence, according to laws laid down in statute books and in case reports. it was a trial that pitted two starkly different moral visions against each other. one of these visions defended the institution of chattel slavery as traditional, necessary, just and worthy of protection from outside interference. particularly, from the outside interferenc

, we have a very robust in my views, very good work. we are not looking to the united states or europe for crude oil. we are looking more towards india and china and developing countries of africa. in the rate of growth for china has come out very strongly. so has india to a point. and this is where the incremental divide is going to come from, not from the united states or western europe. and this recovery continues, we think we should be able to sell as much oil as we are selling now. and if it is a bonus and a growth in europe and north studl amounts, then there may be room for some more incremented in the quantity of oil that we put back. at the moment, i don't see that as such a likelihood, but what i said was in the event of the international market calling for oil in order to keep prices within reasonable level and we are ready to put more out.

. but it was also what i call the lahr value stage of the religious right in the united states. if you look at some of the players in 1960, you see some of the leading lights of what we now call the religious right first becoming active in politics in that election. people like billy graham, the national association of evangelicals and a host of smaller conservative protestant players really broke in their sweatshirts and sneakers in that election. and they discovered they had political power. and the politicians cared about their opinions and the trajectory then takes off so that by now, certainly, the religious right is a very powerful force in american presidential politics. 1960 is where they began to get a thirst and taste for playing at a very large and high political level. so those are all good reasons, i think, for thinking about this election in 1960 because those themes still reverberate down to this day. now, what did i learn in the process of writing this book? sort of two major lessons although you've got to read off 200 some odd pages to get the details. first of all, kennedy had a v
